President and Mrs, Smith pose for a "formal por-
trait" in their home on the campus.
Memphis State s
Ten years ago, in 1946, J. M. "Jack" Smith
became president of Memphis State College, an
institution at that time having an enrollment of
1,500. Since then, Memphis State has grown in
all directions — buildings have been more than
doubled, the faculty has been enlarged to 200
members, the enrollment has passed the 3,500
figure and the institution has gained in prestige
throughout the South and the nation.
President Smith came to Memphis State well
prepared to place the college on the map. He
came up through the one-room, one-teacher
school in rural Hardin County to head Tennessee
Polytechnic Institute, to direct instruction for
Memphis City Schools and to serve at one time
as Tennessee Commissioner of Education. All
of these roles served to prepare President Smith
to take the helm of this institution which had
so much to offer and which had so far to go.
In the way of buildings during this period we
can mention two large additions to the Adminis-
tration Building and the addition to Science
Hall. A new men's dormitory, named in honor
of Grover C. Hayden, was completed and an-
other is on the drawing boards and will be
The Student Center and the Cafeteria were
completed and the "Den," formerly housed in
the Administration Building, gave way to new
offices and classrooms, The new gymnasium was
completed; the Training School enlarged. The
Girls' Dormitory was remodeled and a new addi-
tion started. The library took on a new wing,
plus air-conditioning. Even the auditorium re-
ceived new seats.
Additional departments of in-
struction have been created, more
teachers employed and class offer-
ings increased to better serve the
No one man can receive credit
for all these gains, but on the
other hand, all who have witnessed
the tremendous growth in prestige
and influence of Memphis State,
recognize the guiding influence of
We know that students of the
future will be forever grateful for
the fine example he set. for the
achievements he brought about for
the college and for the influence
he has had on each of us.
President and Mrs. Smith follow all the
games and here enjoy a scoring play
at Crump Stadium.
He wears his academic position well, too. Here is a
typical scene at a commencement program.

A Growing College
in a Growing Area
In comparison with many institutions in the field of educa-
tion, Memphis State is comparatively young. On September
15, 1912, the West Tennessee State Normal School opened
its doors for the first students in Memphis, with the obligation
to train teachers to supply a need that existed even during
More specific laws were passed by the State of Tennessee
and in the Act of 1925 it was declared that the function of
such colleges in the state should be to prepare teachers for
public schools. Memphis State, then, has for many years
supplied trained elementary and high school teachers, in-
structors and supervisors in various subjects and principals
and superintendents of county and city schools.
As educational needs in the state became' broader, the
name was changed by the State Legislature in 1941 to
Memphis State College and the institution began to offer
subjects generally included in a liberal arts curriculum as
well as many other subjects which are demanded by the
state's public school system.
By 1950 the college, located on 80 acres in the eastern
part of Memphis, had grown to such an extent it was felt to
be necessary to reorganize the school in order to serve more
effectively the students of West Tennessee and the surround-
So at that time four schools were created: School of Arts
and Sciences, School of Business Administration, School of
Education and the Graduate School.
The major objective of the School of Arts and Sciences is
to provide students a well-rounded and liberal education, by
introducing them to those major fields of human interest
included in the humanities, social sciences and natural
A professional training unit of the college, The School of
Business Administration, was organized to prepare people to
make a good living in the world of commerce.
The School of Education directs the preparations of future
teachers, provides professional service to public schools and
carries on a continuing program of educational research.
The Graduate School has served to advance the training of
graduates of all these schools, as well as graduates of other

Professor Eugene Bence's production of "The Enchant-
ed" was indeed a fine beginning for the MSC Theatre's
1955-56 season. The play, written by Jean Giraudoux,
is a comedy of a charming young lady's love for a
"ghost" in provincial France — only the "ghost" turns out
not to be a real ghost at all. At the outset of the play,
the small French village where the action occurs is all
upset because of the actions of the mysterious ghost. The
Inspector, skillfully played by Allen Bates, arrives on
the scene with all the answers, or so he thinks. Presently,
a tender romance comes to the attention of the audience
involving Blanche Pope, as Isabel, and The Supervisor,
portrayed by Harvey Dice. Madcap leads to merriment
with the antics of two "Executioners" and the curtain is
rung down on a note of happiness.

The second production of the Memphis State College Theatre
this year is a play described by the critics as " . . . one of the
greatest English psychological studies of murder ..." ever
written. Its author is Emlyn Williams. The story, built around
the actions of a psychopathic murderer named Dan, played by
Harvey Dice, is as stark and suspenseful as the author could
make it. The opening scene takes place in the High Court of
English Justice as Dan is sentenced to death by the Lord Chief
Justice. The rest of the play is in the form of flashbacks to
the events leading up to the death sentence. In these flashbacks,
we see the murder of Mrs. Bramson, played by Diane Parrish,
and the love of Olivia, Joan Helton, both of which tend to
only complicate the plight of our murderer. Truly then, this
is a brilliant study of a murderers innermost thoughts.
Dan is startled as Olivia enters the room
after he has murdered Mrs. Bramson.
The Memphis State College Theatre playbill for
Emlyn Williams' "Night Must Fall' directed by
Brad White, with technical direction by Eugene
Bence. The play was staged in the College Audi-
torium December 8, 9, and 10.

MSC Children's Theatre sponsored jointly by the Speech and Drama department and the Associa-
tion of Childhood Education, Memphis State Chapter. The first production was the beloved fairy
tale "Rumpelstiltskin," directed by Dr. Don C. Streeter, Chairman of MSC's Drama Department.
Designed for children of the First, Second, and Third grades, the show was just as much fun to
produce as it was to watch and was presented on November 4 and twice November 5. The kids liked
it so much that another performance was played on Monday, November 7. Wjih additional enter-
tainment, the show ran about an hour and was a smashing success. Some of the members of the
double cast were: Floyd Herzog, Marvin Smith, Robert Schneller, Perry Wilbur, Gail Howard,
Ann Rush Erwin, Beverly Morton, June Carpenterjoe Gruen, Geraldine Dawson, Iris Hopps, Mar-
tha Owen, Martha Wallace, Renee Haffner, Betty-Erie Pouncey Rhodes, Jane Melton and Martha
Lewis. Brad White and Eugene Bence were technical directors.
The Green Room . . .
Rumpelstiltskin wasn't the only innovation around here. What we call in the
Speech and Drama Department our "Green Room Dramas" moved out of the Green
Room and on to our stage in fine fashion. Perhaps we ought to tell you the story
from the beginning though. Last year a group of actors decided they'd have a few
short shows on their own hook with their own directors as well as student actors. The
idea caught on and flowered into a prosperous enterprise which brought out talent
that hadn't been discovered before. It was found to be an excellent "drama work-
shop." When the shows are staged, all the magic of a big production is in the air
and the interest of both the audience and the players is as keen as ever.
Last year there were eight Green Room Dramas and this year two productions were
A touch of Oriental Theatre came to the MSC stage in November as Marvin
Smith's production of "The Toy Heart" was featured in the first of this year's
series. The second show saw Erwin Shaw's gripping drama "Bury the Dead" ... a
story of dead men who refused to be buried. Experimental theatre at its best is seen
in the Green Room Dramas.

The Forensic Department, made up of 24 Memphis
State students and two faculty members, traveled approxi-
mately 5,000 miles to attend numerous tournaments dur-
ing the school year. In the process, the group won more
awards than in any previous year.
First trip was to Tuscaloosa, where the students parti-
cipated in the Alabama Discussion Tournament to win
one superior award. Their second tournament was the
Regional Tau Kappa Alpha Tournament at the University
of Tennessee at Knoxville. Here they competed with thir-
teen colleges and universities to tie South Carolina for
second place in the overall event.
Then, after much preparation, they traveled to Ada,
Oklahoma, to participate with thirty-three schools in the
East Central State College Tournament. Again they won
many top honors, including a Sweepstakes Excellent in
Junior Women's Forensic Activities.
Their final trip of the first semester took them to Jack-
son, Mississippi, for the Millsaps Tournament, where they
entered the quarter finals.
During the second semester trips were arranged to the
tournament in Cookeville for the Tennessee State compe-
tition; the North-South Tournament at Morgantown, West
Virginia; the Glendy Burke Tournament at Tulane in
New Orleans, and the Southern Speech Association Tour-
nament at Mississippi Southern in Hattiesburg.

We, the Seniors of 1956, find ourselves facing a challenging future and a changing world.
For sixteen years we have studied to prepare ourselves for this moment. We have been taught not
only by textbook and manual, but by faith, hope, and love. Our prayer is that we have learned well
the lessons taught to us.
We leave Memphis State with heads held high — proud of our achievements — and courageous smiles
— ready to take our place in the intriguing future before us. We will meet the responsibilities of to-
morrow as we did those of yesterday, with an open mind and a firm belief in what we think is right.
We know all things are possible if people only believe in and work for them.
We cannot know what the future has in store for us, but we will remember always that part of
our past centered at Memphis State. The friends, the activities, the classes, the smiles and the tears
—all will become cherished memories, never to be forgotten. We have been a part of Memphis
State, and Memphis State will always be a part of us.

We. as Juniors, have but one rung yet to go on the ladder of our college life. As a class we
are overshadowed by the Seniors, Sophomores, and the Freshmen because we are small and because
we are the middle men in college life, both socially and academically. Yet as individuals we rank as
high as any Memphis State student, and we are proud that we have had the courage and fortitude to
stay in college when many dropped out after a two-year period.
We are proud of our individuality and our oneness as a class. We feel that we are achieving much,
yet we realize our shortcomings. Upon completing our third year in college, we have set our standards,
our ideals, and our goals. We have only to put them to use to benefit ourselves and mankind.
We have weathered the storms of three years of college life and now we face the final step, the
final year of prparation for our life's work. We become Seniors with pride and with the courage to
face whatever may present itself to us next year.

WHERE WE EAT . . .
OR JUST BETWEEN CLASSES
We, the Sophomores, Class of 1958, are the largest ever to be enrolled at Memphis State.
Our large number represents a cross-section of college life found in every college community. We
are an integrated part of Memphis State, but we remain in the background, and will stay there
until, as Seniors, we have proven ourselves to be worthy of recognition.
As a class we have had our share of happy times during this past year. Our class dance, which was
held in the Spring, was topped off by the presentation of Mr. and Miss Fabulous and was a big
We are now at the halfway mark in our college career. Some of us will leave Memphis State after
the completion of two years of collegiate work. Many of us, however, will continue our education,
and we look forward to our remaining years at Memphis State.

PRESENTING TO THE PUBLIC
FINE ARTS .
We, as Freshmen, have completed our first year of college life, our first year at Memphis
State, after nine months of days and night crammed with worries and problems, fun and fellowship.
We came in September from farms and towns, cities and suburbs, joining together to compose the
Class of 1959.
We were soon caught in the hustle and bustle of college life. We cheered at pep rallies, studied in
the library and listened in reverence to the religious assemblies. We chose our class leaders, elected our
queen in November and honored her and her court with a dance during that same month.
Suddenly our first year at Memphis State has slipped by and left us not yet realizing that we are
Sophomores. We have learned many things, some we'll forget, many we'll always remember. Through
the interest of our instructors and through the encouragement of the Upperclassmen we have experi-
enced one of the most profitable years of our life.
We look forward to our next three years with hope and expectations, but we shall never forget
our Freshman year at Memphis State!
Left to right: Ronnie Smith, presi-
dent; Jackie Edwards, secretary ; Bob
Canfield, vice president; and Walter
Lane Smith. III. treasurer.

Chi Beta Phi is a national honorary scientific fraternity. The object of the fraternity,
as a whole, is to promote interest in science. The membership includes regular, honorary,
and associate members. For a student to be elected for regular membership, he must
have at least 3.0 average, and have passed ten semester hours in one of the four natural
science fields and have taken an additional ten semester hours in one of the four natural
science fields, not to exceed nine semester hours in any one field.
The yearly activities consist of one meeting each month. There is also a banquet each
semester when pledges are initiated. To add variety to the regularly set-up year, members
occasionally visit some local point of scientific interest.
Feeling that Chi Beta Phi also has an obligation of service to the Memphis State
science departments, it cooperates in anything the departments stage, such as exhibits, sci-
ence fairs, and field trips.

The prophecies of the winning 1955 Homecoming floats
were fulfilled when Tennessee Tech found that they had seen
quite enough of Pi Kappa Alpha's "Puddy Cat," and State
had "Rocked 'Em" just as Sigma Kappa had predicted.
Some 7,000 enthusiastic MSC rooters watched the trium-
phant 20-12 game in Crump Stadium. Second place winners
were Alpha Gamma Delta with "Whale 'Em" and Sigma Chi
with "Lucky Tiger Tonic."

Greater Memphis State
Like its fellow supporting organizations, the Tiger
Club and the college Alumni Association, Greater Mem-
phis State played a prominent role in the public support
of Memphis State programs.
Greater Memphis State advocates university status
for Memphis State College. To that ultimate goal more
than 300 members have dedicated their energies and
financial support in behalf of the college's academic,
cultural and athletic programs.
The organization, under the leadership of Hal Dan-
iel, Jr., gained more new members than in any previous
year after the first of its activity. A membership drive
was sponsored with a net gain of more than 100 new
members. Berl Olswanger, a MSC alumnus, won the
group's award for procuring the most new members.
Greater Memphis State once again was active in
its support of the season football ticket sale in conjunc-
tion with the Le Bonheur Club and its fine group of
workers. The organization also went all-out in support
of the annual Shakespeare Festival, a cultural high-
light in the city.
Serving with Mr. Daniel are Robert Richards, Walter
D. Evans and P. K. Seidman, vice presidents; Enoch
Mitchell, treasurer; and C. Frank Scott, chaplain.
The college alumni association experienced one of
its most outstanding years of progress during 1955-56.
Under the leadership of State Senator T. Robert Acklen
for the second year, the alumni group continued in
growth and progress in a "re-vitalized" movement.
For the first time the association sponsored two ma-
jor events during the year. The first was homecoming
in November. In the spring semester the association
held its annual banquet at which Brig. Gen. Herbert L.
Grills, MSC's top-ranking alumnus in the military serv-
ice, returned to address a group in excess of 300.
The association once again kept the college's widely-
scattered alumni informed through periodic issuance
of "The Columns," the first full-fledged newspaper to
be published by the alumni.
Membership was at a peak never before realized as
the group became active in all phases of supporting
the college and its many programs.
During Mr. Acklen's tenure his co-workers were C.
L. McComas, and Ford Haynes, vice presidents; and
Bob DeZonia, secretary-treasurer.
Officers for the new year are Ed Humphreys, pres-
ident; Jerry Burns and Bill Peeples, vice presidents;
and Mr. DeZonia, secretary-treasurer.

The Tiger Club
Organized for the major purpose of promoting and
supporting a top program of athletics at Memphis State,
the Tiger Club achieved notable success during the
1955-56 school year. With a hard core of business and
professional men — many not alumni of the college —
the Tiger Club listed the following accomplishments:
The group established an athletic scholarship fund
which enabled the college to increase its number of
approved scholarships. Members of the club made nu-
merous public appearances at clubs, meetings and the
like in vocal support of Memphis State's athletic pro-
gram. The result of such appearances was the gaining
of other members.
The club also was interested in the maintenance of
school spirit and to that end the organization secured
the enthusiastic support of Cal Alley, staff cartoonist
for The Commercial Appeal, in designing a decal for
Tiger Club members and in preparing a school "battle
flag" with a large Tiger emblazoned thereon. The flag
accompanied the athletic teams on many of their trips
and was waved enthusiastically by students and club
members to the betterment of school spirit.
The annual Blue-Gray intrasquad football game was
sponsored by the club. Aonther move was the awarding
of sweaters and numerals to the college's unbeaten
freshman football team. The club aided in the purchase
of smart blue sport jackets for the basketball team to
be used as traveling togs. The college's name was em-
broidered on the left breast pocket, and the dress of
the team always drew favorable comment on road trips.
An emergency fund from the sale of club decals was
established to aid athletes in financial difficulty and
several professional men in the club often volunteered
The club was outspoken in its support of university
status for Memphis State.

The Student Government Association at Memphis State is the authoritative voice of the students
and serves as a liaison agent between the students and the college administration. Its main charac-
teristic is a check and balance system of government patterned after that of the United States. It
consists of three branches.
The Spring election of 1955 gave us our officers for the '55-'56 school year. Jerry Lowrie was
elected President; Jere White, Vice President, and Carolyn Dellinger, Secretary.
The Judicial branch held an organizational meeting and elected Jimmy Douglas Chief Justice.
When school started in September the Student Government introduced legislation regarding the
formation of a special committee to work toward the objective of achieving university status for our
college. This committee was formed. Legislation was also passed lengthening the time permitted on
The Student Government Association handled many of the major events on campus. The election
of the Homecoming Queen, judging of Homecoming floats and the Homecoming dance, the Student
Popularity elections, the All-Student Dance, the chartering of busses to the Murray basketball
game, and the planning of May Day were just a few of the events handled by the SGA.

neverthless put on a great show, leading the favored team
until the last seven minutes of play. At halftime the Lam-

National fame has been brought to Memphis State College in recent
years through the successful basketball coaching job performed by
Dr. Eugene Lambert — truly a fine gentleman and a master of the game.
Dr. "'Gene" came to Memphis State for the 1951-52 season and has
built his teams up each year. During the current year his team drew
capacity-plus crowds, both at home and away.
During his first year at MSC. his men won 25 and lost 10. The
1952-53 season was one devoted to building and the 10 victories in 24
contests showed that emphasis was on years ahead. The next year
the team won 15. lost 9. and the 1954-55 season brought 17 victories
with only 4 setbacks. In the NCAA tournament the team went out
59-55 to Penn State.
1955-56 has been another successful season, with more victories
and another chance at the National Collegiate Athletic Association
Coach Lambert was assisted by Norman Sloan, who came to the
college from Presbyterian College in Clinton. S.C. While a coach there
his teams won 70. lost 33. and played in the NAIA eliminations.

Hardin-Simmons, Texas Western and Arizona.

Second in Senior Bowl
After rallying to defeat Miami of Florida, 79-71, the
Tigers fell to Spring Hill, 69-65, in the Senior Bowl Tourna-
ment at Mobile in January. The Tigers, at the time rated
12th in the nation, were a bit sluggish in the contests.
Spring Hill trailed 63-48 with seven minutes left, but
struck for 21 points while the Tigers scored only one field
goal on the way.
Western Kentucky dropped in for a contest, and went
away on the short end of a 80-64 score after an overflow
crowd packed the field house. The Tigers hit the comeback
trial in fine fashion, coming from behind to lead 37-34 at
the half, and pulled away from the visitors in the last half.
A trip to Jonesboro netted a 74-64 win over Arkansas

State went ahead 49-42 at the half but could not hold on as the locals
went scoring crazy the final minutes of the game. The win was Tech's 10th
straight on their home court.
A large delegation of fans followed the Tigers to Murray, -Kentucky, to
see one of the most exciting contests of the season. After the score went
back and forth many times the Tigers managed to come home with a vic-
tory — 100-94, and for the eighth time during the season scored 100 or
better. Scoring honors were widely shared with six players marking up 10
or more points.

Salute to Seniors
Fortner. short hut fast, shot and outran the opposition.
Three outstanding college basketball play-
ers brought their collegiate careers to a close
at Memphis State this spring.
Forest Arnold played four fine years for
the Tigers, scoring hundreds of points to aid
the team in scoring victory after victory. He
played both the center and the guard spots.
Elmore Fortner, one of the smallest play-
ers on the team, was also one of the fastest.
He was constantly "on the go" and seldom
did an opposing player outrun him or out-
shoot him. He played guard.
Ken Caldwell, another guard, was
another fine player who really came
into his own as the season neared its-
end. His ability to hit the long shots
caused the opposition much trouble.
All three seniors were given a
standing ovation in the final home
game as nearly 4,000 fans yelled
their hearts out to show their appre-
ciation for the fine work done.
Caldwell went up plenty high to jump over the other team to score.
Forest Arnold scored hundreds of points and did a fine job on taking rebounds under the basket.
Assistant basketball coach Norman Sloan replaced successful A. L.
Allen as track mentor for the 1956 season. Allen resigned his position after
last year's undefeated cinder season.
The coach departed, along with a few seniors on the '55 squad, but a
strong contingent of lettermen returned to make this year's outlook appear

Providing a break in routine, intramural athletics at Memphis State strive
to teach the average student sportsmanship and clean play, besides giving
him an opportunity to reach and retain top physical condition. Intramural
athletics at Memphis State for 1955-56 were an enormous success.
Leading off the intramural program, Kappa Alpha edged Kappa Sigma
for the football title. Both teams were winners of their respective leagues.
The Independents spoiled Kappa Alpha's chances of winning two titles by
repeating as intramural basketball kings.
For the first time in school history, Memphis State turned out a boxing
team for competition in the Golden Gloves tournaments. Light heavyweight
Charles Sorsby and heavyweight Johnny Shepard gave the school its first
titles. Johnny Franklin battled his way into the finals before losing.
Another inside sport was volleyball. First place went to the Veterans,
while Kappa Sigma was runner-up. Most popular sport on the spring sched-
ule is softball.

win Mid-South title in novice division.
A mad dash for the wire is typical of May Day activities which highlight
the intramural vear.
Powder puffs are a thing long since forgotten
when Memphis State coeds take part in their di-
vision of the intramural program. Kicking off the
school year, Alpha Delta Pi won honors in volley-
ball, edging out YWCA.
Girls' basketball followed with a round robin
schedule, followed by a double elimination tourna-
ment which continued into the Spring.
Women's Intramural Director
More May Day action.
Spring activities are plentiful in women's intra-
murals. Badminton, archery, shuffleboard, horse-
shoes, tennis and golf afford a variety of ways
for coeds to enjoy themselves during the final
stages of the school year.
Climax of the intramural year is May Day.

mural program, busies herself with schedules and

April, 1955, saw the beginning of Memphis
State's newest sorority, Alpha Epsilon, a colony
of the national organization Alpha Epsilon Phi.
The 1955-56 school year was composed of a
multitude of firsts for the Alpha Epsilons. We had
our first rush party, initiation and as a highlight
of the year our first dinner dance held in Febru-
ary in honor of our new members.
A primary aim of the group throughout the year
was to become an integral part of campus life.
We participated in Intramurals, furnished a Home-
coming display, and ushered for All-Sing.
The Alpha Epsilons feel that we have accom-
plished a great deal during this year and will
continue to be an active and growing group on
Memphis State's Campus.

State's campus October 2, 1948. The members and pledges are enjoying the third
year in the chapter's house. It is the only fraternity house at Memphis State and is

25 children of Porter Leath Orphanage. Entertainment and a visit from Santa Claus
was provided by Chapter members.
The Old South Ball and the Black and White Ball were the highlights of Gamma
Gamma's social functions. The finest Southern traditions prevailed at the fifth annual

century. At a costume party given for the members by the pledges, George Jennings
and Betty Brown won first place dressed as the Old Gold dancing twins.

idea was to form a brotherhood which would preserve the priceless friendships and
joys of college. Delta Zeta Chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha came to Memphis State
December 7, 1947.

this year providing a family of four with a complete Christmas and food for several
weeks. Pike is also the first fraternity to offer a scholarship to a Freshman. This year
the scholarship went to Jim Green, a graduate of Messick High School.
